Streetcars, then and now...

I collect postcards and other photos of streetcars.

I remember my grandmother telling me about going on the streetcar with her mother when she was young.

Little Rock's Central Arkansas Transit Authority brought back an electric trolley. Some people complain about the amount of money CATA spends to run the trolley the short distance in the downtown areas of the twin cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock, but I like it.

When I am in the River Market District, I always try to catch a ride - if for nothing more than to slow myself down.

I've never ridden a streetcar but I like the looks of the yellow and red 410 from North Little Rock. Should I ever find myself there, I will definitely ride it!

I didn't know you liked streetcars. There's another blogger, Christine, who has 76 "Streetcar Sunday" posts with a variety of streetcar cars from all over. You can see her blog at http://postcardparadise.blogspot.com/. She's "on break" until early June but if you scroll to the bottom of her blog you can click on the link for streetcars and see the ones she's posted..
